Commander 7x30c is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact Quality I have had the Commander 7x30 for some years. I really like the superb quality in a small package. The diopter adjustment covers a wide range so that I can adjust to avoid having to use my glasses. If you prefer to keep glasses on, the eyecups roll down to allow that. The brightness of the optics is excellent, as is the sharpness. Really, a very satisfactory optic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best quality of the product Previous binoculars from Nikon, Marine 7X50. Commander looks better due to best in class quality and design. A lot of fun using it during my ride on Lake Ontario today.

They can handle some extreme cold but I do not recommend storing them on your boat over the winter.
